Hello Everyone! I am planning a rebuild and I have a couple questions. First of all, I like mecanums better, but have been told that they are not very good. My questions is, for base width, mecanums or omnis? I would prefer mecanums, so keep that in mind. The second question which relates to the first, is how wide my base needs to be for me to comfortably stack two in the protected zone? (holes are 0.5") Also, from complex tray experience, should I direct drive or use a gearing ratio for the front wheels(spacewise)?
- Direct Drive
- Gearing Ratio
I was also wondering a good length for the base because all around I have heard 2 different things, a shorter or longer base.
- Shorter (15" or shorter)
- Longer(16" or longer)
Lastly, I would like to request tips on complex traybots that you have figured out. Thank you for your time!
What tips I know
HS axles on arms, brace towers better(I need suggestions on what techniques to use for this), better bracing on intake arms(x and/or 1x5 brace), and screw joints
